The Wifey-Poo is Losing It

I was seeking creative input from the wifey-poo over something the other day and we were discussing popular cartoon characters. I suggested Sponge Bob be added to the list. Here’s how the conversation went:

Me: Hey, how about Sponge Bob?

Her: Sponge Bob isn’t a cartoon character

Me: Errr... Yeah. You’re right honey, I had him over the other night for a hot tub. He got all big and bloated though so he had to stay awhile until he dried out and felt self confident enough to go home…

Her: Oh yeah, I guess he is a cartoon character

Me: This is so going into a blog post

Her: Well don’t mention about that time I thought those little sample display tents they have in stores were actually puppy dog tents…

Me: I’d never do that….(snicker, snicker go the gnomes)


(All right...to be fair to her...when I was little I used to think Toto was a little man in a dog suit)

Are you saying that Toto was not a little man in a dog suit? You cannot be serious. I mean Toto had to be a little man in a dog suit, otherwise how did they get him to do all the acting, I mean he was the best thing in the show.

And I suppose that next you are going to tell me that there aren't any good or bad witches either.

I am gonna now curl up and cry....

What other secrets do the gnomes know and aren't telling? I mean you aren't going to tell me that Sponge Bob does not have square pants, that Patrick is not his best friend, that there is no such thing as Crabby Patties, or that The Little Mermaid is not really living under the sea....wahwahwahwahwah......

God bless.

Oh, I almost fogot, I am doing that shameless promotion thingy again for "made4aid". So I hope that everyone will please visit my site to get the link.

And also help to shamelessly promote it too.

It is that time of the year for giving.

God bless.

Roy Scribner said...

Wait, Toto was a real dog?

Moooooog35 said...

Maybe she thought you were talking about her 'personal masseuse' codenamed "Sponge Bob."

I hear he's pretty popular.

Expensive, but popular.

Quirkyloon said...

Whew! I thought I was going to have to quit yer blog!

Sponge Bob RULES!

He is my personal hero and...

Those little tents are for dogs! Why, I just bought one the other day!

hee hee hee

ReformingGeek said...

Hum...you seem to be in the know. Maybe you could explain about the Storm Troopers. I say that they are gnomes on stilts. Hubby says people wearing a costume.

Anne said...

those ARE the cutest little tents. i always wanted one.

Perpetual Chocoholic said...

I'm more concerned about how you jumped from Sponge Bob to little tents.

Perpetual Chocoholic said...

Oh, and Mr. P. always is concerned about what I'm posting on my blog. I think he's on it more than I am making sure I haven't "quoted" him.

Elizabeth said...

I totally thought those little tents were for dolls and didn't understand why I couldn't buy one for my Barbie's big camping trip.

Matt-Man said...

None of the beliefs that you or your wife have had surprise me. What surprises me is that your wife has been married to you for awhile and she is just NOW losing it.

I truly apologize for being amiss for a long while VE. I dig ya. Cheers!!

Kurt said...

But you probly thought Toto was a man in a costume when you were a kid, right?

Nessa said...

Don't tell anyone, but I thought it was so weird how the person all the way on the left at Wheel of Fortune was also the person who won the spin and got to go first.

A very blonde moment.

Gladys said...

Who the heck is Sponge Bob? Is that your new neighbor? Why was he in your hot tub?

Ronda Laveen said...

You just can't make the best stuff up. P.S. I think puppy tents are a $$ idea.

Chris Wood said...

I met that Fred Flintstone once. Nice bloke, but not very sophisticated.

VE said...

mrsupole - There you go again being first. Oh, and I think you know far enough about SpongeBob...

roy - See...I knew I wasn't alone!

moooooog35 - I'd better get a job I guess if I need to support that habbit for her...

quirkyloon - Quit my blog? Quit my blog? Now you've gone and got the gnomes all worked up again. I told them there'd be no layoffs...

reforminggeek - Ha! You are correct...but just tell the hubby he's correct...that's the way it works, you know

anne - They could make a fortune selling those little tents...

perpetual - You can secretly write things about him in code. You know, have everyone read every third word to get the message...

elizabeth - They're holding out from letting us buy them. It's a conspiracy!

matt-man - Ha! I had her convinced I might actually become rich or famous. The key word is...MIGHT...

kurt - Yes, but a little man. R2D2 was a little man too, of course...

nessa - Amazing...I thought that was such a coincidence too. I'm amazed too that the puzzles always have an answer and they always figure them out...

gladys - You should discuss this with the wifey-poo...I'm working on a miniature hot tub for Toto...

ronda - Why? Is there a law against it? I can't help but make this stuff up...it's my super power. Too bad it never amounts to anything...well, other than great blog entertainment...

VE said...

chris - I hope you didn't have those spare ribs with him. You'd be constipated for a week!

Jaime said...

Ha! And one really late night in law school, I couldn't figure out that the "national mint" didn't refer to peppermint or spearmint.

Damn. I probably shouldn't admit that

Matty said...

I have conversations with my wife too. Unfortunately, I'm usually the one I'm making fun of on my blog.

Nessa said...

Congratulations! I see you have quietly passed the 50,000 word mark.

Serena said...

Hey, don't give Wifey-Poo a hard time. They DO look like puppy tents. Of course, there is the Sponge Bob conundrum...:)

Janna said...

I love Spongebob!
And Squidward! And Patrick!
And Plankton and Mr. Krabs and Larry the Lobster and Sandy the...

(pause)

(*realizes everyone is staring*)

Um, I mean...
They're ok. I guess.
Ahem.

Megan said...

You're still married?

Baino said...

Don't laugh we have puppy tents! So you can take your dog to the beach without it being sun affected (or maybe they're for kids I'm not sure.)

VE said...

jaime - Ha! I hope you didn't eat too much money in the realization...

matty - Well, everyone knows the gnomes around here always make fun of me (along with the readers around here too) so it's fair to give the wifey-poo some once and awhile...

nessa - Yes, it was a good feeling to pass that milestone...

serena - Luckily she doesn't have access to write posts here...I can only imagine what she'd add to my list...

janna - And I'm sure you're just fine when they're out camping with a campfire...under the ocean!!!

megan - Stranger things have happened...I think

baino - You need our beach... they're rarely ever sun affected. Such is the coast of Oregon...

Uncivil said...

Wasn't Nancy Pelosi the wicked witch of the west?

Janna said...

"janna - And I'm sure you're just fine when they're out camping with a campfire...under the ocean!!!"

Exactly! I smile blissfully as my brain turns spongy and yellow.
It's great.

BTW, they also drive boats underwater and go to underwater beaches, where they need a lifeguard in case they start drowning.

VE said...

uncivil - I thought it was Sara Palin...

janna - Well...I didn't want to go into too many inconsistencies...

Maureen said...

Well duh! They ARE called Pup Tents after all... geez.

VE said...

maureen - Tell that to the salesforce over at REI...
